New ESGE/WEO cascade guideline
June 26, 2020
The European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) has implemented a cascade methodology in a joint effort with the World Endoscopy Organization (WEO), aiming to adapt existing guidelines to make them applicable to resource-limited regions (including some African countries) . Previously, two cascade guidelines have been published focusing on endoscopic management of non-variceal upper gastrointestinal bleeding and upper gastrointestinal obstruction, respectively [8–10]. This ESGE cascade guideline aims to standardize endoscopic management of patients with variceal gastrointestinal bleeding.
